Areas of Interest

Dr. Keyserling’s research interests include lifestyle interventions to reduce risk for common chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, and stroke).


My clinical practice emphasizes patient-centered and evidence-informed care for management of medical conditions and prevention. My research has focused on the development and testing of behavioral interventions designed to reduce the risk for and improve the management of common chronic illness, such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. These studies have focused on improving both dietary and physical activity behaviors and outcomes have included change in blood cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, and physical activity.
